BIOIMPEDANCE ANALYSIS TEST (BIA)
A simple non-invasive test used to measure body composition(fat mass, muscle mass, water content). The weight measured on a scale is often not indicative of the body’s fat content.
The BIA analysis provides us with an easy to use method to monitor the progress of weight-loss protocols in order to ensure that fat mass is lost and muscle mass is preserved or increased.
